|Official Feminists in Canada - blink|
The Leading Canadian Women's Mag - Chatelaine - came out with shocked news a few weeks ago - Feminism is not the brand it once was as:
68% of Canadian women don’t call themselves a feminist
Of course - even those numbers don't seem right - except that the traditional readership of one of Canada's premiere magazine titles could have stated it smugly as "32% of Canadian Women reaffirm commitment to Feminism". The actual title represents an effort to "jinn-up" their diminishing readership base and create an opportunity to prop-up that failing brand by repeating the feminist mantra - ad nausium. Only a few years ago that figure was 20% (although that was from a properly represented sample and not one as self-selectively biased as Chatelaine).
But the cover - 40 almost exclusively white, middle-aged, middle-class women - gave it away - despite the accompanying video with primped and edgy avowels and a few honest, questioning souls.
No, this was a swan song "call to defend" the gynocentric ubercult - which seems finally to be finding itself under cultural siege - despite help from "the Dauphin" Trudeau. His Chief of Staff'Katy Telfords solution to waning popularity? Double-down!
More of us should call ourselves Feminists!
